We are SO thrilled to announce that Emily Putnam will be taking on the brand new position of “Marketing and Services Coordinator” here at Spectrum! As part her role, Emily will be overseeing student registration, communicating with caregivers about changes in services, and just generally making sure that every student is placed in a setting that brings out their best creative potential.
Emily will also be helping us with our marketing and community building efforts (you might have already noticed some really fun highlights she’s been sharing on our social media platforms this week!). We have a ton of awesome new projects in the works, and we’re so excited to have her on board to help us spread the word!
While this is new position, Emily is already a familiar face to many of our families! Over the past few months, she’s been a friendly presence up at the front desk helping students check in for their lessons.
Emily comes to Spectrum with a passion for helping others through the arts. After graduating from Ithaca College with her bachelor’s degree in Drama, she moved home to Rochester to explore the possibilities within our burgeoning artistic community. She was drawn to the world of public relations after performing onstage with Rochester PR maven and Director of Dresden Public Relations, Dresden Engle, in Pittsford Musicals’ 2013 production of Les Miserables. She spent two years as Dresden’s Public Relations & Social Media Manager, learning the ins and outs of public relations, communications, and marketing firsthand. One of her favorite things about PR (and about acting onstage) is the opportunity to share inspiring stories about incredible people, of which there is no shortage at Spectrum. When she’s not helping new clients plan their services or spreading the word about our services through marketing and outreach, Emily is either teaching The Play’s The Thing: A Monthly Play Reading Series at the Rochester Brainery, or actively rehearsing and performing in theatre productions throughout the Rochester area. Next up, Emily is very excited to be playing her dream role, Peggy Sawyer, in 42nd Street coming to the Kodak Center for Performing Arts this April.
We are incredibly excited about the energy Emily will be bringing into this new position! If you have questions about services or are interested in learning more about our programming, feel free to connect with her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (585) 383-1999 ext. 1013
